Καταγραφές του είδους Pinna nobilis

Εν μέσω καραντίνας δημιουργείται η ευκαιρία να "ξεφυλλίσουμε" τα παλιά μας αρχεία φωτογραφιών είτε μέσα από φωτογραφικά άλμπουμ, είτε το ηλεκτρονικό μας αρχείο και να βρούμε είδη τα οποία μπορούν να βοηθήσουν την επιστημονική κοινότητα στην προστασία τους.

Η πίννα (Pinna nobilis - fan mussel) είναι το μεγαλύτερο δίθυρο της Μεσογείου. Μπορεί να βρεθεί μόνο στη Μεσόγειο και πλέον ο πληθυσμός τους κρίνεται σαν Κρισίμως Κινδυνεύον.

Θα θέλαμε να μας αναρτήσετε παλαιότερες αλλά και νέες φωτογραφίες του είδους όπου το έχετε βρει, είτε ζωντανό, είτε νεκρό σε παραλίες με πληροφορίες για την περιοχή όπου βρέθηκε αλλά και την ημερομηνία καθώς και το βάθος.

Όσοι έχετε ενδοιασμούς για την αποκάλυψη της περιοχής που βρήκατε το είδος, μπορείτε να μας στείλετε τις πληροφορίες με προσωπικό μήνυμα στη σελίδα της iSea

Ευχαριστούμε τον Δημήτρη Πουρσανίδη για τη παραχώρηση της φωτογραφίας.

20 000 наблюдений в проекте "Флора Подмосковья | Moscow Oblast Flora"

Дорогие друзья!

Вчера наш региональный проект по флоре Московской области набрал 20 000 наблюдений. Вот текущая статистика:

20,012 observations - 983 species - 628 identifiers - 760 observers

Проект по Подмосковью, во многом, уникален. Прежде всего, здесь больше всего наблюдателей. Во-вторых, здесь самый высокий h-индекс ("индекс Хирша") - сейчас он равен 55. Это значит, что 55 человек сделали больше 55 наблюдений. Это значит, что данные по флоре Московской области собирает не просто много народу, а много активных натуралистов.

Мы с нетерпением ждём выхода новой книжки коллектива авторов под руководством С.Р. Майорова по адвентивной флоре Московского региона, в которой будут суммированы новые сведения по заносным растениям Москвы и Подмосковья. Некоторые удивительные находки сделали участники платформы iNaturalist.

Ещё немного о том, зачем нужно много данных по хорошо изученным территориям (на примере Подмосковья), можно прочитать тут: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/moscow-oblast-flora/journal/32352-20-000

Давайте традиционно отметим ведущих наблюдателей регионального проекта:

Just seedlings

These are the seedlings in the RestoreNet sites at Scottsdale Community College and at Lake Pleasant. I wanted to share them with several people and this seemed the easiest way to do it.

Helping Identify Unidentified Organisms

https://www.inaturalist.org/identifications/mandygjertsen

I was able to identify most to into their genus and family. One of them I was not able to identify a family and it was left at the genus. It was more difficult to identify the plant species because the pictures were sometimes hard to definitely see and to know for sure what it would be identified as. The animals were easier to identify because the they were more common to me and I have seen them more than the plants. They were animal species that I had been able to identify before but it was sometimes harder to have a specific family due to the many different options. The patterns on the animals and color variations were what helped me identify further.
I was prevented from identifying further with the plant species because I do not know very many details and would not consider myself an expert in the study and would not say that I can identify very exactly.

At home - inside and out.

“In times of crisis, the natural world is a source of both joy and solace. The natural world produces the comfort that can come from nothing else. And we are part of the natural world.” Sir David Attenborough.

Now is the time to seek some comfort and solace by finding the nature around you at home. As we can't get out and about too much, let's focus on our houses and backyards. Have a look around inside your house. Are there any spiders in webs in the corners of your rooms, flies in the living room, bees or wasps banging against your windows? Do you have any animals around inside your house? I don't mean your brothers or sisters or mums, dads or other humans. What about pets? Have you a pet cat, dog, budgie, rabbit, guinea pig, rat or goldfish? You can start to use iNaturalist to photograph and record all those living things. Get going and join this project!

The Field Herping Guide

Alright, this is my first time doing this, so I hope i'm doing it right... I am currently reading The Field Herping Guide by Mike Pingleton and Joshua Holbrook. I would highly suggest it to anyone who is a beginning field herper, like me. It is very informative and fun to read. It has changed the way I catch, handle, and just think about reptiles amphibians. I am certainly enjoying it and hope that anyone else who reads it will too.

ESPM 140 – iNaturalist Field Journal & Observations

For the rest of the course, you will be submitting weekly journal entries into iNaturalist. This will include the insects you’ve encountered throughout your collecting and trapping. We will be following a modified format of the Grinnell System, developed by Joseph Grinnell, first director of MVZ.

More information about the Grinnell System:
http://gk12calbio.berkeley.edu/lessons/fieldnoteguide.pdf
https://pages.wustl.edu/files/pages/imce/mnh/grinnell-journaling.pdf

These weekly journal entries will be worth 20 points. The point breakdown will be as followed:

The Journal ( 5 points)
This section will act as your diary, explain what route you took, what traps or tools you used (if any). What did you see? Where did you look? Did you see any insects and were unable to catch them? What was the weather like? What times did you collect? Day time? Night time?

In this section you will also record all the information you would have required to make an insect label:

Country, State, County, Locality, GPS location, Elevation, , Date, Collector
Method

Species list ( 10 points)

In this section you will list all the insects you came across, please try to include photos of most if not all insects you come across. These photos should be uploaded into iNaturalist as observations. While writing your journal in iNaturalist you can check off what observations to include into your entry.

Aim to have 10+ observations per week. These will count towards your total observations you need for your virtual collection.

Species Account ( 5 points)

In this section, try to write a short account of an insect you came across. Did some insect catch your eye? Have some interesting behavior? Try to ID this insect to family and then talk about what it did that interested you.

Example:

Journal #1
USA, California, San Diego County, Albany, Some GPS, Elev: 18m, 30 March 2020, Coll: A. Cabrero
Method: Hand, Net
Time: 3:00p – 4:00pm, 10:30pm-11pm

Today I decided to explore what insect life could be found around my house. It was a sunny day, mild weather, with slight winds. I started by searching near my windowsills and seeing what I found. A few spiders were encountered, with some poor moths as prey. My dog was scratching himself, so I decided to exam him. I found a flea on him, not the first insect I wanted to encounter on my exploration =/ I made my way outside and instantly saw insect activity. There were a few butterflies flying around, I saw a few cabbage whites and a painted lady. Although nice insects to come across, I was more interested in seeing what flies I found. I used my net and swept the overgrown grass, I caught many small flies and spooked a beautiful crane fly that flew into the rosemary bush. Some other flies observed were the usually suspects like calliphorids, sarcophagids and syrphids. Lastly, I decided to look at my carnivorous plant bogs I have outside, I found a few unlucky insects trapped in my sundews and pitcher plants. Far too digested to find out what they were. It was cool to discover the soil full of collembola, they likely enjoy the constant wet conditions. I also found some aphids on my pitcher plants, which wasn’t the most exciting thing to discover…

After my nightly dog walk, I decided to check around the porch lights. There was a lot of insect activity. The crane flies were bumbling around. A few chironomids were perched along the wall underneath the light. The most interesting insect I came across was probably a brown lacewing that was also hanging around the light.

Species list:
*Note, I was unable to take photos of most of my observations, but you should aim to have photos for all of them so you can submit iNaturalist observations!*

Dog flea 
Cabbage White
Painted Lady
Sarcophagid Sp.
Calliphorid Sp.
Syrphid, likely Toxomerus marginatus?
Tipulidae
Hemerobiidae
Aphidae
Chironomidae
Collembola, Entomobryidae?

Species Account:

I think my favorite observation of my mini collecting trip was the large red crane fly I spooked out the grass. It flew up over me and into the rosemary bush. Not the strongest flier and I’m not sure it had much choice of where it ended up, the winds really picked up. It struggled to settle itself into the bush, its long legs likely not helping it. There it lingered for a few moments, I was able to get some close-up photos of its really beautiful coloration. I’ve grown accustomed to the common brown crane flies, so it was nice to see this red one. I debated catching it but decided to let it be. Soon after it took off and the wind slammed it into my lemon tree. c'est la vie.

COVID-19 Update

Hello everyone,

We wanted to give an update on 2020's CNC situation. Given the current circumstances surrounding the outbreak of COVID-19, we are restructuring this year’s City Nature Challenge in the Boston area -- first, by renaming it the City Nature Celebration! Instead of competing, we seek to share appreciation of nature and its biodiversity. To keep everyone safe and comply with rules around social gatherings, we are cancelling in-person events. Our goal is to help everyone participate in the CNC, even while keeping our communities safe.

Many are now taking solace in their time away from work or school by spending more time in the great outdoors. We encourage all to shift focus to the local flora and fauna of your own neighborhood, and backyards. By taking a closer look at your natural surroundings, we can gain a greater appreciation of local wildlife while also adhering to social distancing guidelines. We also want to encourage everyone to take care to preserve and treat natural spaces and creatures with respect.

National Geographic has some excellent activities described on their website that can be done right in your own backyard. Some other fun activities that can be done to explore your local biodiversity include setting up camera traps, building your own insect catcher, and installing coverboards to find all sorts of critters. Even lights in front of your own house can be used to attract insects at night, something that Project PorchLight focuses on. We hope that you all stay safe in this time but continue to observe and appreciate your natural surroundings.

Best regards,
The CNC Steering Committee

ecoEXPLORE in the Era of COVID-19

ecoEXPLORE hopes to serve the residents of the State of North Carolina with purposeful and safe opportunities for families to spend time outdoors together. That may mean observations might occur inside your residence, in your yard, or in a window box. We have created a new badge, the BioBlitz Bonus Badge, that can be earned by completing weekly nature challenges as a family- and adults will get to earn their own North Carolina BioBlitz patch! Activities are designed to be done at or near home, and will culminate in the City Nature Challenge; a worldwide BioBlitz, on April 24-27.

For more details, and to register, visit ecoEXPLORE.net. Happy exploring!

Calvert County Dragonfly Season is Here - 30th of March, 2020

Went for a hike in Calvert Cliffs State Park yesterday (March 30, 2020) afternoon after hearing at noontime that a Maryland-wide Stay-at-Home order would go into effect at 8:00 PM in response to the Coronavirus Pandemic. I was rewarded with the first dragonflies of 2020 - many Common Green Darners zipping about the aquatic plants and seemingly never resting. Trying to get photographs was a near impossibility (for me at least), but I was able to capture one blurry image of a Darner momentarily hovering and then a second poor image of the same Darner when it landed on vegetation for a brief second. It also just missed becoming a lunchtime meal when a frog with poor aim took a shot at it as it flew by.

The Common Green Darner is truly one of the more interesting dragonflies by virtue of its migratory behavior. Their annual migration involves two migratory and one non-migratory generations. In the spring, the first generation makes a long distance northbound migration, lays its eggs, and dies. The second generation emerges and will make the return trip southward, lay its eggs, and dies. The third generation is a resident generation at the southern locale and does not migrate. They will emerge, reproduce locally, lay eggs, and then dies. Their offspring will migrate northward the following spring to complete the cycle. Reference: Hallworth, MT, et al., Biology Letters, 14(2) 2018.

Tech Tip Tuesday: All About Your Dashboard

Mud season is here! Well, I guess it has probably been here for a while, but this week I was finally able to venture far enough from my home to encounter it. Although I live on a dirt road, it has yet to substantially soften up. Over the weekend, I opted to take my socially-distanced exercise to a hiking trail leading off a distant backroad. While I was prepared for cold, rainy weather, I wasn’t prepared for 6-inch muddy trenches. Good thing my car has all-wheel drive—otherwise I might have found myself in some real trouble.

Besides muddy road trenches, bleak skies, and lingering ice patches, the hike was wonderful. I don’t know about anyone else, but I find that I treasure my moments outdoors infinitely more now that I spend many hours each week wandering between rooms in my house, trying to find the quietest spot for Zoom conference calls. This hike was particularly interesting because I saw both a live and a dead porcupine within a span of about 100 feet along the trail. After another couple hundred feet of hiking, I found a den site. It’s moments like these that help take me away from all the stress around me and make me excited to get back out.

A final note, if you do choose to visit a trail or park off your property, please remember to treat it with respect. With social distancing measures in place, there are fewer folks out running routine maintenance. At this time, we must all do our part to keep the wild spaces we love clean and safe.

This Week on Tech Tip Tuesday

This week we’re going to familiarize ourselves with a section of iNaturalist that we regularly visit but may not pay much attention to: our dashboards. This is the page we see when we first open iNaturalist on our computers. While many of us (myself included) probably just glance at it quickly before moving on to search or upload observations, it has a lot of useful features. You can use it to stay up to date with other users and projects you follow, view your calendar, check out your personal observations, and even keep a journal. Below, I will walk you through each of the tabs and explain what each can do.

First, you need to get to your dashboard. iNaturalist should open to this page when you login. If you are trying to get there from a different part of the site, go to your profile icon in the top right corner, hover your cursor over it so that the drop-down menu appears, and click “dashboard”. You can also find it at https://www.inaturalist.org/home.

Now that you’ve found it, let’s explore some tabs.

Home – This is the first tab in the line-up and the one that iNaturalist usually opens to. This is the page where you will find updates from users and projects you follow. For example, for those of you who are members of the Vermont Atlas of Life project, an update will appear here whenever the VAL team posts Tech Tip Tuesday or any other article. Ultimately, you can think of it like any of your usual social media newsfeeds.

You can also filter the updates on your home page to show all updates, your content, people you’re following, or real time discussions by clicking the different categories listed above the newsfeed.

Profile – Here you will find your personal profile. If you haven’t added any information to your profile, I highly recommend you do so. You can check out this installment of TTT to learn more about creating an awesome profile.

Observations – The observations tab will take you to your observations page the same as if you clicked on “Your Observations” across the top bar on your screen. From this page, you can edit your observations, add new ones, or search through your observations.

Calendar – From your calendar, you can see all the observations that you made on a certain day. These are shown by blue, clickable dates. When you click on the number, you will go to a page displaying the individual observations as well as the number of taxa you observed, the number of observations, and the number of life list firsts. You can view these observations in the usual three formats: grid, list, and map. By clicking on the map view, you can see where all your observations were made on that day. This is a great tool for checking to make sure that your observations’ locations are correct. By using map view, you can quickly check for outliers and edit observations whose locations are incorrectly placed.

Favorites – By visiting this tab, you can find all the observations you have favorited and revisit them. You can view them in grid, list, or map format.

Lists – Here, you can view and edit all your lists, as well as create new ones. Check out this TTT to learn more about using lists.

Journal – This is an interesting feature which, honestly, I have yet to use myself, however I know that a lot of people find it handy. Under “journal” you can create your own personal blog post and even link observations to it. This is a good way to document particularly exciting encounters or keep a nature journal of all your adventures.

IDs – By visiting this page, you will find a list of all the observations you have contributed identifications to.

Projects – This page shows all the projects you have joined. You can also manage your project invitations here by clicking on the button that says, “Manage your project invitations”.

That’s it! Dashboard may not be iNaturalist’s most glamorous tool, however it provides a lot of opportunities for organizing and expanding your user experience.

TTT Task of the Week

This week, I encourage you to explore your dashboard, get familiar with it, and add information where it’s needed. Please check out the referenced TTT articles for more in-depth guidance on making some of these edits.

As always, thank you for helping us map Vermont’s biodiversity, stay safe, and happy observing!

Bienvenido/Welcome to the Nosara Biodiversity Project page!

(ESP abajo)

The Wildlife Conservation Association is excited to announce a partnership with the Nosara Civic Association for this project, a large-scale study of the biodiversity in the area. In addition to camera trap monitoring within NCA parklands, we will be promoting the use of the iNaturalist app in the community to crowd-source scientific data collection within the Ostional National Wildlife Refuge and Nosara buffer zone.

During this difficult time of isolation, we hope to bring the community together virtually as we admire the nature and wildlife that surround us. For the time being, this is not meant to encourage going outdoors and forming large groups, but instead, share time with family members and looking at biodiversity in your gardens or terraces, if you go out for a minute to walk the dog, or even just what you can see from your windows!

Get the app now and start sharing old and new observations straight from your phone!
www.inaturalist.org

La Asociación para la Conservación de Vida Silvestre se complace en anunciar una colaboración con la Asociación Cívica de Nosara para este proyecto, un estudio a gran escala de la biodiversidad en el área. Además del monitoreo de la cámara trampa dentro de los parques de la NCA, promoveremos el uso de la aplicación iNaturalist en la comunidad para recopilar datos científicos de forma colectiva dentro del Refugio Nacional de Vida Silvestre Ostional y la zona de amortiguamiento de Nosara.

Durante este difícil momento de aislamiento, esperamos reunir a la comunidad virtualmente mientras admiramos la naturaleza y vida silvestre que nos rodea. Por el momento, esto no pretende alentar salir al aire libre y formar grandes grupos, sino compartir el tiempo con miembros de la familia y observar la biodiversidad en sus jardines o terrazas, si sale un minuto a pasear al perro, o incluso justo lo que pueden ver desde sus ventanas!

¡Obtenga la aplicación ahora y empieza a compartir observaciones antiguas y nuevas directamente desde su teléfono!
